My cousin just got an ultra carry series 1. He got it for a little over 600.00. I have read the series 1's ,are in some opinions,a better gun. Is this true? If so how? The finish on his is a lot more metallic looking than my series 2. Is this normal? Have they changed the finish for any reasons other than looks?

The Cousin

hey guys I'm the cousin that kimber41 is talking about...just got the gun today from a RI dealer who listed on GunsAmerica. he only took pics off the offhand side of the pistol,and when I called him,I only asked that it had an internal extractor......never thought to ask if it was a series I or II.Anyway like my cuz says,I got it for 629.00 plus shipping so it's a decent buy either way I think. Theres a tiny scratch on the trigger guard bottom and a wear mark on the frame thats only visible when the slide is locked back and the slidestop is up.Aside from thatand the funky aluminum foil looking silver frame finish...I think I did OK.....shot 21 shots for accuracy late this afternoon and 29 for function (fast and soft handed), I had one FTL with the Kimber mag,but the gun came totally crudded up and I just brushed the loose stuff off the ramp with my finger before I shot it. that was with the first loaded mag and then all was well.....and I can HIT WITH THIS THING !!!!!:cool::cool:

You did good. I paid around $650 for my pre-Series II several years ago, which unfortunately I no longer have. I think they are probably selling for a little more than book, simply beause they are in demand and are getting harder to find.

I feel like I got a great deal on my pre II HD at $600 with Novak's night sights. It's at Kimber now and I don't know if I'll recognize it when it gets back. :D I'm looking forward to the front strap checkering too. It's only thing I really liked when comparing checkered and non-checkered back to back.

Hang on to it and take care of it!!
